I stumbled across this book by chance. I always have loved books with spies and/or terrorists. This book is excellent. The second book is even better, it focuses more on Kaileigh as well as Steel. All in all it is very good! Now go read it! For people who like this I also recommend Alex Rider and I,Q.

This is my first book by Pearson, and the odds are I'll check out the next one. Meet Steven "Steel" Trapp. He your average teenage genius, he has a photographic memory, and his mind is a steel trap, hence the name. Once he sees something, or reads something, he'll always remember it. He and his mother are on their way to Washington, DC for a Science Fair for building a robot. On the train he saw a woman bring on a brief case and stated to get off the train. Steel saw it, grabbed it and tried to give it back to the women. She said it wasn't hers, and left it there. That's not good enough for Steel, he can't get it open the regular way, so he came up with a way to open it, and sees a picture inside it, and his life is changed. It seems that some terrorists are after him. With the help of a girl he just met and US Marshals, he'll have to find a way to stop the terroriest, and keep his family safe. As the plot thickens, he finds out his father isn't really who he said he was. Over all, it was an oaky read. I found Steel an interesting characters. I felt the mom and him argued a lot, and it didn't seem to fit. I'd have liked to see more of a cat and mouse chase between Steel and the bad guys. Pearson has one or two plot twists that should keep the reader interested in the story. Is it perfect? No, but it's not a bad read.

Alex Rider fans will enjoy this thriller about Steel Trapp, a 14-year-old science whiz with a photographic memory. On a train trip to Washington D.C. for the National Science Challenge, Steel notices a woman leaving the train without her briefcase. By doing a good deed and attempting to return it to her, Steel gets involved in a criminal plot by kidnappers and possible terrorists. Although not every element of the plot hols together, the book is fast-paced and exciting.

Steel Trapp: The Challenge by Ridley Pearson is a phenomenal book about a boy with a photographic memory. Steven "Steel" Trapp is competing In the national science competition in Washington D.C. when a woman forgets a brief case on board the train he is going on and he insists it is hers and then he tries to figure out and stop terrorists getting money. When I reading this book, it was really boring for a couple chapters but when it got interesting it got good. I remember one part in the book when Steel breaks into the brief case the woman left behind and saw a woman tied up and looked like she was crying. This book defiantly kept me up at the edge of my seat the whole time. This is a great action adventure book and any action lovers would love this book.
